The head of u.s. diplomacy has reported that, "in concert with the military and Intelligence agents of Maduro, members of the security forces, cuban have been implicated in serious Human Rights violations in Venezuela, including torture".
Cuba is one of the few allies you have left to Mature in the region. The united states has already imposed sanctions on senior venezuelan, including Mature, for Human Rights violations, corruption and drug trafficking and has warned that it will continue to increase the pressure.
Castro was in charge of the Presidency of Cuba in 2008, when he gave the baton to his brother Fidel, and 2018, when he ceded the position to Miguel Diaz-Canel in a historic transition of power.
Since then, Castro is still only as head of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC), a position in which it will remain until 2021 and that will allow it to continue influencing the political life of the country.Updated Date: 27 September 2019, 01:02
